Get to Know the Mobile Network Prefix Numbers in the Philippines for 2022

Smart Communications, Globe Telecom and DITO Telecommunity are among the three (3) major mobile network service providers in the Philippines. Smart has Sun Cellular and TNT (Talk ‘n Text) as their subsidiary networks, while Globe has TM (Touch Mobile) and GOMO.

With all these mobile network providers operating in the country, telling what network a phone number belongs to is a headache.

Why Is It Important to Know the Network of a Phone Number?

Before calling or texting someone, it is important to know what mobile network he or she is using. Doing so can help you save extra prepaid load and prevent unwanted charges on your load balance, especially if you have a regular load.

Even if you are registered for a load promo, you still need to check what network that person is using prior to making a call or sending an SMS. It is to make sure that the airtime credits consumed in performing that action are from the load promo you are subscribed to.

Or else, it will consume your remaining regular load balance.

Understanding the Mobile Number Prefixes

In the Philippines, the telecom companies – Smart, Globe, Sun, DITO, TNT, and TM – use a prefix number as a unique identifier to determine a phone number’s mobile network.

In layman’s terms, these numbers are called “prefix numbers” since they are located at the start of any 11-digit phone number. Its the first four digits. If a phone number is in international format, use the reference below.

Quick Example

We have a phone number: 639123456789. To get its prefix number, we simply take out the first two numbers, 63, and replace them with zero (0). Now we have 0912 as the prefix number.

If we look at the list above, it is loud and clear that the mobile network of 09123456789 is TNT.
